Short Description
Diagnosis after DEYNAT & FERMON, 2001 [677]: Himantura oxyrhyncha is consistent with the characteristics of the genus in presenting a tail much longer than disc length and in lacking skin folds on its ridges (McEachran and Capapé, 1984). It is characterised by the following combination of characters: disc quadrangular, snout elongate, dorsal surface of the disc with a reticulated color pattern, close-set dermal denticles with a flat heart-shaped crown, numerous heart-shaped tubercles with flat crown, extending from the nuchal area to the base of the sting.

Distribution
Asia: Cambodia, Thailand, and Borneo.
